The first picture was taken 2/27/07 and it shows me trying to bite down. I just went to the orthodontist yesturday for my monthly "tightening" , which is actually just getting a new wire put in and new little colored bands. This time I chose metalic green, pretty ey. The second picture was taken this morning. I'm able to close my mouth just a bit more. I found out yesturday that my molars should be touching. hmm. He said he will have to work on that. I thought it was just the bottom brackets keeping them from touching. I have no idea how much longer I have to wear them for. I have to wear my top retainer during the day as long as I have the braces on the bottom. Then as far as I know I only will have to wear the darn thing at night.
This is today bottom view.
